Tune of the Day: Spring Song

by Felix Mendelssohn, arranged for Flute and Piano

This gorgeous “Frühlingslied”, or “Spring Song”, is taken from the fifth book of Felix Mendelssohn's series of lyrical piano pieces Lieder ohne Worte, or Songs without Words. This “song” was also known in England as “Camberwell Green”, being the place in London where Mendelssohn composed it while staying with the Benneckes, relatives of his wife.

Thanks to James for suggesting this piece!
